A- 92% Creed (2015) "Manages to both satisfy fans and toy with expectations, twisting many of the clichés that Rocky helped propagate in order to craft a new bout of pugilism. Easily one of the best films of the season. " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Nov 24, 2015
100% Kilo Two Bravo (2015) "A rare, incredibly well executed film about brotherhood, tenacity and grit. " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Nov 13, 2015
B+ 27% By The Sea (2015) "Likely to be dismissed by many, it's a charming film that feels like a love letter to an earlier time while also toying with our contemporary proclivities. Easily Jolie's finest work to date. " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Nov 13, 2015
B 64% Spectre (2015) "The ghosts laid out in Spectre are put to rest, and if the process isn't quite as seamless as one would hope, there's still a satisfaction of seeing the man shaking it up, if not quite stirring our hearts. " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Nov 5, 2015
89% The Price We Pay (2015) "The Price We Pay is a complex, nuanced film about a complex, nuanced situation. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted Oct 27, 2015
D- 8% Rock the Kasbah (2015) "KASBAH is crap, an entirely forgettable role for a major comedic talent " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Oct 23, 2015
B+ 91% Bridge of Spies (2015) "There's a meaty philosophical underpinning to what superficially is a straightforward cold war romp, and when it's at its best the film really does feel like the work of a true master. " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Oct 16, 2015
3.5/4 69% Crimson Peak (2015) "Guillermo del Toro's latest dive into the darkness is a sumptuous, beautifully constructed tale that feels both archaic and inviting. " ‐ Globe and Mail
Posted Oct 16, 2015
87% Turbo Kid (2015) "Turbo Kid is a lot of fun, a goofy ride through the wilds of nostalgia. " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Oct 7, 2015
A 100% Rams (Hrútar) "A film that's emotionally complex and moving and using the best of its storytelling elements and sublime environment to tell this lovely narrative. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted Oct 4, 2015
92% The Cabin in the Woods (2012) "I think you'll find that your visit to the genre-bending The Cabin In The Woods will prove to be one of the most unabashedly enjoyable trips in years. I hope you enjoy the ride. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted Sep 27, 2015
A- 98% 45 Years (2015) " At its core 45 Years is a ghost story, not the stuff of diaphanous whisps or screeching banshees, but a presence of a perfectly pedestrian, yet no less devastating, kind. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 22, 2015
B 47% Freeheld (2015) "The film has plenty going for it, yet for those jaded viewers who will justifiably feel they've seen it all before it may be fair to remember that it may not really be targeted at them. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 22, 2015
A 100% Anomalisa (2015) "The story is about the novelty of novelty, and one thing that's thematically consistent is how one is lulled into forgetting for spates of time that these are objects being handled. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 22, 2015
B- 73% The Danish Girl (2015) "Lensed by David Cohen, there's sumptuousness to the photography that's at times breathtaking " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 22, 2015
A- 90% Beasts of No Nation (2015) "It's this collision between a deeply philosophical work and a visceral, kinetic powerhouse of a film that sets Beasts of No Nation apart, a near perfect blending of ideas and action that result in a film that's one of the best of the year. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 22, 2015
A- 98% Spotlight (2015) "The film does well to make the investigation seem suspenseful even if anyone paying any attention to the news over the last decade and a half knows the outcome. " ‐ Film School Rejects
Posted Sep 15, 2015
B+ 78% Sleeping Giant "Sleeping Giant is exceptional and affecting, a film both provocative and probing of the deep characteristics of these kids. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted Sep 14, 2015
B+ 75% Black Mass (2015) "Black Mass may not quite climb to the pantheon of gangster films that it emulates, but it remains at its best its own work of power and impact. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted Sep 13, 2015
B+ 86% Hardcore "The most shocking part of the whole film isn't that it's heart-poundingly intense (it is) or that it feels new and inventive (it does that too), but that it's at times pretty damn witty with some terrific story beats (no, really). " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Sep 13, 2015
A- 50% Demolition (2016) "Artistic and accessible, it's another bravado performance by Jake G, a sterling film by Vallée, and an all around impressive look into grieving from a very different and occasionally difficult perspective. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted Sep 10, 2015
A- 96% Room (2015) "Room is a delight, a film both thoughtful and moving, with at times an astonishing capacity to get under one's skin. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted Sep 7, 2015
B+ 67% The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) "Call me crazy but I'm calling Man From U.N.C.L.E. is some of the most fun you'll have a theatre this summer. " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Aug 13, 2015
B- 27% Vacation (2015) "Vacation stands well alongside the other films in a series, movies that for some are perhaps better in their memories rather than in their execution. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted Jul 31, 2015
B- 92% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) "Like Hunt is asked to do at the beginning of every quest I'll gladly accept this latest Mission: Impossible, but I'll keep my fingers crossed that next time we'll have an even better trip to go on. " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Jul 30, 2015
B+ 78% The Reflecting Skin (1990) "The Reflecting Skin is a strange, at times wonderful film, one that leaves more questions open than answers. Its palate and performances collide in ways that seem unique decades on. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted Jul 23, 2015
A- 95% We Are Still Here (2015) "Demonstrates how homage can provide the undercurrent for a films visual and narrative language, yet go beyond simplistic checkboxing of references...Plays like a cold winter storm with occasional gusts punctuating the biting, incessant frigidity. " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Jul 22, 2015
C+ 59% Southpaw (2015) "Southpaw may stumble, its footwork maybe wobbly and its storyline at times farcically clichéd, yet as an exercise in performance and a showcase for its leads it's a gratifying piece. " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Jul 22, 2015
C- 25% Extinction (2015) " It very much feels like it's trying too hard to be a grand and serious work while at the same time using some of the most hoary and overripe tropes of the genre to make its points. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted Jul 20, 2015
B 87% Mr. Holmes (2015) "So, while the film is decent if perhaps contrived and mundane, it's made just that more magnificent by McKellen's turn. He's that breathtaking to watch, that charismatic and engaging on screen that you forget the rest. " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Jul 17, 2015
B- 79% Ant-Man (2015) "Ant-Man is, well, OK, and maybe that's enough. I wanted more, and those moments where it looked like I was going to get it, only to have things not quite come to fruition, makes the film as frustrating as it is enjoyable. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted Jul 14, 2015
B+ 83% The Visit (2015) "It's not likely that you've seen a film like The Visit before. A deeply cerebral film, it's nonetheless an entertaining one with compelling imagery and a fascinating premise. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted Jul 3, 2015
C- 25% Terminator Genisys (2015) "There's Arnie marching around, swinging at pixels and throwing out one-liners like a champ. He's the most nostalgic thing out of the whole shebang, and if the film's at all enjoyable it rests entirely upon his more human-scale shoulders. " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Jun 30, 2015
F 46% Ted 2 (2015) "Ted 2 is fetid " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Jun 25, 2015
B+ 71% Jurassic World (2015) "We're treated to a bit of escapist fun that gives us pretty much what we want from a silly summer blockbuster. " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Jun 11, 2015
C- 32% Entourage (2015) "Entourage simply cannot sustain its storyline or its characters within a cinematic framework...At best you can think of this as an epilogue to the show, a "very special episode" where we get to spend some time with characters you've grown to know " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Jun 3, 2015
B- 50% San Andreas (2015) "So who's to find fault with a film about faultlines, where one is simply supposed to revel in the seismocalypse and enjoy the tectonic fury? " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted May 28, 2015
B+ 86% Macbeth (2015) "Definitive telling of Billy S's play this may not be, but as an entertaining/effective variation upon them it's a remarkable work. With visuals as dark and brooding as its titular character, it stands well alongside its peers while carving its own path. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted May 28, 2015
A- 100% Dheepan "A powerful film that has moments of sheer bravado. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted May 26, 2015
A 93% Sicario (2015) "A film that at times feels like an adventure, while at others it affects one like a stab in the stomach, Sicario's dagger plunges deeply. Bravo, Monsieur Villeneuve, bravo. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted May 19, 2015
A 91% Green Room (2016) "Littered with clever dialogue, a beautifully constructed narrative, as well as moments that shift between the energizing and sheer terror, there are a slew of endearing qualities worth sifting through. " ‐ indieWIRE
Posted May 18, 2015
A- 98% Inside Out (2015) "Yes, this is heady stuff, which is apt since the film takes place in a young girl's head. Inside Out is tremendous, an instant animation classic that's a far cry from being kids stuff. This is Pixar growing up, and it's all the better for it. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted May 18, 2015
C- 0% Sea of Trees "Everything feels like it's trying too hard to appease both thematic poles, and things aren't helped when the final reveals (and there are several) make themselves known. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted May 17, 2015
C 42% Irrational Man (2015) "It's not irrational to have hoped for more from Irrational Man, perhaps, but it's still disappointing to see that this is what we get from this fine group of talent. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted May 16, 2015
A+ 95% Son of Saul (2015) "This is a film that easily stands with the giants that have tackled the subject matter, crafting a new and vital facet of an impossibly complex story, and doing so in a way that's both riveting and revealing. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted May 15, 2015
A+ 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "Mad Max: Fury Road is Miller's masterpiece. It's a tour-de-force film, an action romp par excellence...A wonderous blast of fun that's sure to warm the heart of even the most jaded anti-blockbuster audience member. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted May 11, 2015
D- 54% Maggie (2015) " So, we're left with a film that's no delight to actually watch, with performances that are decent if perhaps forgettable, and a narrative that relies on some of the more dull genre elements to prod audiences into feigning interest. " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted May 9, 2015
A 100% Night Owls (2015) "A confident, effective piece, Night Owls may not be a hoot, but it's a film that earns every emotional beat it drums out. With commendable performances and assured direction, this is the cream of what these Indie films can present. " ‐ TwitchFilm
Posted Apr 19, 2015
A- 92% Ex Machina (2015) "Garland more than establishes himself as talent to watch. The perfect balance between the cerebral and the emotional, crafting a thrilling film that still remains intellectually provocative - A difficult creature to build indeed. " ‐ Dork Shelf
Posted Apr 14, 2015
61% Unfriended (2015) "Writer Nelson Greaves and director Levan Gabriadze do a decent job of creating genuine tension within the almost theatrical, proscenium-like arrangement of the computer screen. " ‐ TwitchFilm
